Labradoodles and Australian Labradoodles are different breeds. While they both have American Labs and poodles in their lines, the Australian LD adds the oldest first spaniel, the Irish Water Spaniel, Curly Coated Retriever and American or English Cocker Spaniel in the breed. Our girls Gemini and Cocoa are true Australian Labradoodles. We breed them to a poodle for improvement of coat texture and smaller size. ALD make great hunting dogs as well as companion dogs. The result will be a smaller miniature size dog from 20-28lb grown (guess) and they will have curly non shed coats.
The Confirmed Parent Breeds of the Australian Labradoodle are:
Poodle (Standard, Miniature, Toy)
Irish Water Spaniel.
Curly Coat Retriever.
American Cocker Spaniel.
English Cocker Spaniel.
NO AUSSIE in this Mix! The breeds heritage is from Australia!
